Ale Bowls

Ale Bowls are drinking vessels. Traditionally, they were used on special ceremonial occasions such as weddings, baptisms and funerals or perhaps on Christmas or New Year's. A fancy ale bowl was a status symbol for the larger rural land owners in Norway.


Phillip Odden is a master ale bowl maker! One of a kind ale bowls in all sizes, some are stained, some natural, some painted. Please email or call for what we have available, we always have some and they are never the same.

Here are a few samples:

An ale bowl can take on a wide variety of shapes and forms limited only by the imagination. Philip and Else have studied these ornate drinking vessels in museum collections in Norway and America.

The wide variety of forms and decor truly fascinate them. To date we have made several dozen ale bowls and rarely are two alike. They can be made to order and finished with a natural stain or painted.

These ale bowls are included in distinguished collections in the United States as well as in other countries.
